"Tracking Time in Auschwitz"
(Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)
Presenter: Alan Rosen, International School for Holocaust Studies, Yad Vashem, and others
How would our lives be changed if we had no idea what day it was? No idea when we should observe religious holidays or mark the passing of another year? Dr. Alan Rosen examines these intriguing questions in the context of the Holocaust when Jews in ghettos, camps, and in hiding were compelled to develop innovative strategies to track time, maintain continuity with the past, and envision a future.
